52 Cameras: Week 25 part 2 — Kodak Advantix T550

The film is old and the roll was exposed to some light during processing. I decided to see what I could salvage on the scanner. First, I taped the APS film into the scanner’s 35mm adapter. Sharp but the exposure was way off. Next, I tried putting the film directly on the scanner glass. Better exposure but the focus was off — the scanner expects the film to be lifted off of the glass by the adapter. These photos are from the 3rd attempt. I taped the negatives to some low-glare glass from a picture frame. The focus is still a little off since the glass isn’t the exact height of the adapter but it’s a decent compromise. 4800 DPI TIFFs on the Canoscan 9000f, reduced to 25% and converted to JPEG.

This was on the roll in the camera.  There are some of someone's kid too.

Jem and Goober up to something.  Original roll but I took this one.  Dust cleanup & color correction in Photoshop.

Power line shoes.  I left this one alone.  None of my adjustments had that gritty, Polaroid feel.

The next two are shot on the film I got from Film Photography Project. Processing, scanning, and color tweaks by The Camera Shop of Santa Fe. Reduced to 25% for upload.

I like to mix it up but since the cameras had to share the FPP film, the Kodak Advantix C800 is up next.
